Sunrise over Xiapu, China by Iancaus2001 Sunrise over Xiapu, China by Iancaus2001
An attractive, though cloudless sunrise over the unique seaweed farms of Xiapu.
Taken on mid-Autumn eve, it is the basis for an "impossible" moon-rise photo.

You really should, while it's relatively quiet. The new High-speed train line, Guangzhou to Beijing is open now and passes within a few miles of Xiapu; not sure if it stops at Xiamen, but signs are that more tourists will be going there in the near future. I will certainly be going back. The coast for 20 miles is a forest of bamboo poles; I will post another Xiapu pic soon. China is a wonderful place; I came for a 90 day visit,....3 1/2 years ago. Besides teaching I work for China International Travel Service in the online wholesale division, Top China Travel, where I proofread, edit, write articles and go out to update their website and promotional photos. You have the chance to see it, and the Chinese are among the most friendly, hospitable people I have ever met. Wish I had found it a couple of decades earlier.
cheers,
